On September 28 to October 2, 2014, Save the Children US trained 15 participants from the Middle East region from relevant agencies and nongovernmental organizations on infant and young child feeding in emergencies (IYCF-E). Held in Istanbul, Turkey, participants included practitioners and program planners that are instrumental in designing and implementing IYCF-E responses in the Middle East region, as well as regional personnel who focus on IYCF-E strategy. On May 11–15, 2015, Save the Children US trained 22 participants including government ministry staff in Nairobi, Kenya, using the same curriculum. Both trainings complemented Save the Children US’s initiative to design a global IYCF-E capacity-strengthening plan moving forward.
